Deepika Padukone, who cleansed her Instagram profile at the beginning of this year, has been delighting her Instafam with freshly brewed content. Be it goofy dance videos with husband Ranveer Singh or bake-offs with her bestie, the actress' Instagram profile is a sheer delight. This time, however, she collaborated with animator Danny Casale and shared a reel, which addresses the topic of anxiety. The video has a voiceover by Deepika. "Hey, don't worry. Here, do this with me. Take a deep breath and then breathe out and do this." She added that this is a "jaadoo ki jhappi." Sharing the video, she wrote: "Tag someone who deserves a Jadoo Ki Jhappi."
Deepika Padukone has been an active advocate of mental health awareness and has been extensively working towards de-stigmatising mental illness. The actress, who came out in 2015 as having battled depression, runs the Live Love Laugh Foundation, which aims to help those struggling with their mental health.
In 2015, Deepika Padukone revealed that she had been diagnosed with depression the year before and had sought help. Speaking to NDTV, Deepika said, "I woke up one morning just feeling empty you know like this pitt-ish feeling in my stomach that I was telling them that I get this pittish feeling in my stomach. I woke up like feeling directionless, I didn't know where to go, I didn't know what to do and I had these bouts of feeling so low that I would just start crying at the drop of the hat."
In terms of work, Deepika Padukone has a busy schedule ahead, with several releases lined-up. She awaits the release of the sports film '83, in which her husband Ranveer Singh plays the role of cricketing legend Kapil Dev. The actress will also star in Shakun Batra's untitled film with Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi. She also has a film with Prabhas. The actress was last seen in Chhapaak, which she also produced. She will co-star in the Hindi remake of The Intern, alongside Amitabh Bachchan. She will also be seen in Siddharth Anand's film Fighter, alongside Hrithik Roshan, who recently shared a update where he wrote that the film is "ready for take off."
